Climate Bubbles @ Futuresonic ’09

A playful, participatory project in which Bubble Blowing Games enable people across the city of Manchester to map air flow and the urban climate. Get involved by performing two types of measurements with bubbles to test air circulation, and by sharing the results online, enable the Met Office to get a snapshot of the Urban Heat Island phenomenon.

The Bubble Chase: Blow and chase bubbles to measure wind direction in Manchester. Remember where you started and ended the run, then upload this to our website.

The Bubble Race: Blow a bubble and record how long it takes to travel 10 metres. Upload the location of your measurement along with the time so we can work out the wind speed!
